Barkers Fencing was approached by a major customer on behalf of one of their clients to develop a perimeter fence that:
The Stronguard™ fence already had the CPNI Base and Enhanced accreditation, as well as two PAS 68 certifications (RCS 25 PAS 68: 2010: 2500 (N1G)/48/90 0.0 & RCS 75 PAS68: 2010: 7500 (N2)/48/90 0.3).
Barkers needed to design and re-engineer the fabric of the Stronguard™ system whist maintaining the visual appearance.
After several engineering changes, and whilst undergoing Barkers' own development and testing program, a design was achieved that was believed to meet the end user's requirements. The product was then put forward for CAST and CPNI testing, ultimately gaining and achieving CPNI HIGH classification.
The information gained from the attack tests was analysed by the client, and applied it to their operational requirement with the outcome being the successful installation of several hundred metres.
The installation faced tough, arduous conditions and varying ground conditions. Due to the complex nature of this particular installation, Barkers Fencing worked closely with the client and end user to overcome site obstacles. Minor changes were completed within the boundaries of the design to enable the system to be completed safely, on time, to a high level of quality and within budget.
The site now has a high security fence, successfully installed and fully operational, which has readily addressed a significant potential vulnerability to an enhanced threat assumption.
